Travis Paige: The Leica Project

August 27-September 16, 2019

Opening Reception: Friday, August 30, 5:30-7pm

The Leica IIIa was ahead of its time when it became the first 35mm compact camera system. With its built-in rangefinder, removable collapsible lens, and fast shutter speeds, it allowed photographers to take pictures like never before. The Leica Project places a refurbished 1937 Leica IIa screw-mount camera into the hands of eight local photographers who have two weeks to master the camera. Their work is shot with black and white or color film, developed, and printed. You can view their photographs, biographies, and the camera in the Carter-Kelsey Building lobby at AVA through September 16, 2019.

Prints are available for order through AVA at 603-448-3117 or
